Self-Care Portfolio

R4S’ Self-care Portfolio includes activities aimed at deepening understanding of self-care through a people-centered approach. Countries increasingly seek to integrate self-care into FP policies and programs. But there is little evidence available to create an enabling environment for self-care programming, despite the growing appreciation that self-care is a culturally relative concept. R4S has designed and implemented studies to capture attitudes, preferences and intentions regarding FP self-care from women, men and providers.

HIPs Portfolio

Includes activities that assess multiple service delivery practices to inform programmatic decisions for scale-up – either vertically into local or national health systems and policies, or horizontally to new geographies or groups.  Knowledge generated can facilitate advocacy efforts for the adoption and sustainability of interventions that are proven to enhance the impact of FP programs and investment of resources to address equitable access to services among traditionally underserved populations or groups. 

COVID-19 Portfolio

During the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, R4S designed and implemented studies aimed at capturing the pandemic’s impact on FP service delivery and use, as well as documenting the lessons learned from program adaptations.
